I did a gallstone flush according to med. advice. Online I read stones are made up of a variety of compounds, eg cholesterol. I dissolved some stones in rubbing alcohol- my guess is that cholesterol would dissolve in -HOL, but maybe other things do too? Some that disaggree w/ the practice of gallbladder/liver flushing say that only saponified olive oil is released. Would saponified olive oil dissolved in -HOL? I'm saving the stones in the freezer, awaiting your answer! Many many thanks!
